Choosing a Lot
Pay attention to traffic. Even though the pricing can be better on homes that are built on well-traveled roads, make sure you know you can tolerate the noise and traffic. Busy roads are something to think twice about—especially if you have young children.
Determine how close you want to be to your neighbors. If it’s a brand-new community, make sure you’re clear on how much space will exist between homes—and if it’s something you’re comfortable with.
Size up the view. If your home is being built on or near undeveloped property, find out what future plans are. Are they residential? Commercial? A park perhaps? Educate yourself.
